Review & Install Video

Key Features. One of the areas on Jeeps that always get beat up is the recessed part of the door under the handles. Fingernails, keys, and whatever else is constantly hitting the paint, resulting in a look that's less than stellar. These Rugged Ridge Door Handle Recess Guards fix the problem by covering up any present damage and preventing more in the future. They're made to match the black plastic door handles, so they compliment the look of your rig and make it appear even more customized. Installation is simple and the material is durable.

Construction. Constructed out of high-quality ABS plastic, these Door Handle Recess Guards are UV treated so they won't easily fade or crack from sitting in the sun. Like the other plastic bits on your Jeep, the clean up nice and resist scratching. A double-sided tape is included for installation, with automotive-grade adhesive that's designed to hold up under constant exporsure to extreme temperatures and dust.

Installation. This is one of the easiest modifications for a Jeep. There are absolutely no tools needed, but you do have to clean the area around the handles, plus all five exterior handles extremely well. If you don't get all the grime off the paint, plus dry everything super well, the included tape might not work right, so this is critical. You should dry fit each guard before actually trying to install it, just so you're familiar with how to get them behind the handles and how they fit in the recessses. Once you do peel off the protective film from the double-sided tape, press the guards against the doors for about a minute for maximum adhesion, then be cautious with the guards for about 24 hours. After that, you shouldn't have to worry.

Application. Rugged Ridge makes these Door Handle Recess Guards to fit perfectly on all 2007-2018 Jeep Wranglers and Wrangler Unlimiteds.

I am looking for only Matte Black or the powder black finish to match the other modifications to my Jeep. Are these the shiny plastic black or the matte black?

    Nice upgrade!

    Wow what a difference a simple inexpensive addition can make. Should have been part of the original design in my opinion. Install was quick and simple (I spent more time peeling off the tape backing than actually installing). THE ONLY negative is the tape is rather thick and if you are really looking close you can see a slight gap between this and the door itself. Really you have to look close though. Love them.

    Pleasant Surprise

    I purchased these more to round out an order than because I thought they were needed. When I received them I was initially disappointed that 5 pieces of plastic cost $30+... They rattled around in the garage for a week before I put them on.... After a quick and easy install I am extremely pleased and happy with my purchase. They look factory, and jeep should have put them on. Functional, looks good, serves a purpose other than looks..... Happy with them now that they are on.

    Simple and subtle

    Was looking for something for the exterior of my jeep and found these. They only take a few minutes to put on. Take a few extra moments to line each one up perfectly before you apply. Once they're stuck on, good luck getting them off. They add a nice touch to the look of the jeep, but they don't exactly stand out. That's why I like them, subtle but cool. I would buy them again.

    item that Jeep should install

    Installed on my 2014 JK in less than 30 minutes. My Jeep is Granite gray and these inserts added additional black trim on the Jeep and also serves to protect the door recesses. Good product !!

    These were really easy to apply and look great. They don't get in the way of your hand when grabbing the handles. Would definitely recommend.

    Easy install, factory look...

    Clean all the recess' with alcohol wipes, especially the back door gets really nasty. ***Very Important*** do a "test-fit" and rotate the guard, you will find a "sweet-spot" where it seems to fit PERFECTLY, remove tape, carefully put in place, then press to seat.

    They look and function well, I think if the double sided tape was thinner they would fit better.

    Should be standard item on Jeeps.

    Excellent addition but should be standard item on a jeep to protect the paint. Looks great, clean finished look. Very easy to install. Would purchase again. Very reasonable in price.

    Cheap protection from scratches.

    One of the first thing we have put on our jeeps so far. Cheap protection against scratching from nails, rings, keys etc. Also nice contrasting detail on doors. Easy install but take your time, 3M tape is extremely sticky.
